Yeah, I've been kind of silent lately. Hopefully that will change now that I'm out of my cave.
I'm no longer involved full-time with Elastra; I do remain a part time advisor. One day the story will be told. Until then, I highly recommend reading Steve Blank's blog & books for an apropos understanding of how startups often struggle and remain stubborn in the face of said struggle. On the bright side, the current team has their head screwed on straight and is still doing great work.
What am I up to? Consulting, for now at least! Jetstream Cirrus is my company, and yes, there are intentionally many ways of reading into that name. I'm offering independent advice & implementation on integration architecture, REST, agile operations, scalable systems, and cloud computing consulting in the U.S. and Canada.
